‘Strong Possibility’ New Hampshire Will Turn Red In 2024

New Hampshire, a state with a history of political unpredictability, hasn’t cast its electoral votes for a Republican presidential candidate since the year 2000. Yet, in the lead-up to the 2024 election, the state is emerging as a critical battleground, capturing the attention of political observers nationwide.

Gov. Chris Sununu (R-NH), a prominent Republican figure in the state, firmly believes that Joe Biden’s changing of the primary schedule has caused a rift with New Hampshire voters and opened the door for conservatives to win the state.

In a recent appearance on “Fox & Friends First,” Gov. Sununu accused President Biden of attempting to play politics by giving priority to South Carolina in the primary schedule, a move that Sununu believes is an insult to the voters of New Hampshire.

“Joe Biden has completely screwed this up for himself and for the Democrats. We’re going first no matter what,” Sununu declared, emphasizing the importance of New Hampshire’s primary.

He continued, “People realize it’s just insulting. I mean, it really is. The president has insulted the Democrats of this state. So I think a lot of folks realize we are an independent-minded state; we tend to be a little more Republican. That’s why there could be a very strong possibility this state goes Republican in November.”

Biden’s move to elevate South Carolina’s importance in the Democratic primary schedule, partly as a return of favor to Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) and an effort to empower minority voters, may have come at the cost of alienating New Hampshire. However, the question remains whether democrats, despite feeling slighted, will rally behind Biden in 2024.

Gov. Sununu maintains that New Hampshire is still a swing state with the potential to sway either way, even with recent political tensions. “Biden’s completely turned his back on the state. Everybody realizes it,” Sununu asserts.

Though New Hampshire possesses only four Electoral College votes, in a closely contested election, those votes could indeed make a decisive difference. As 2024 approaches, all eyes will be on the Granite State, eager to see whether it remains true to its reputation for political independence — or cave to social pressure and stay blue.
